Greens were terrible today
After all the rains we’ve had, you would’ve thought the course would be lush and nice. Nope. Typical of LA City to not look after anything, like the rest of the city.
The greens had almost 2 months since punching to recover yet they were like putting on fly paper with bumps on them. So sad.
Slow but steady...
The course was okay, but the greens were not well maintained - they were like fairways.
Fun track. No frills
Played here many times. Good track with nice and wide fairways to bomb it. 2 green has been in need of help for a long time but the rest are generally nice and smooth. Fairways are pretty good with your typical kikuyu grass. On 10 take driver and aim for the left or right rough. Everything in the middle will roll all the way back to the flat. Also anything short on your second will roll back 50 yards.
The course has great features.
We play every few months love the course. Fast speed of play and great tee times.
Always enjoy this course
Course is in very good condition and we moved along just fine... just like always here. I don't think I've ever had a bad experience here. I really like the layout... challenging, but fair. A reliable course in our regular rotation.
Becoming worst managed course in LA City
I've played this course 3 times within the last month. Last weekend used a hotdeal t time for 12:24. T off 45 minutes late. All other days I played previous were also very late, anywhere from 20 minutes to the 45 minute this past weekend. Groups had no concept of their slow play, putting and marking 6 inches from the hole. Groups playing from the black that should be playing from the whites. By the 10th hole, after 2 hrs and 45 minutes to play 9 holes, it got even slower. Barely finished in with minimum light around 6 pm. Used to be a favorite, now this course goes to the bottom of my list. I thought Los Verdes was the worst, this course is becoming the new Los Verdes.
Beautiful Day for Golf...
The weather was perfect and the course was in good shape... Lots of Lady Bugs and cleat marks on the greens... But it was still a great day at the golf course...
Good, solid course for the money
Course was in good shape and played pretty true. If you haven't played Hansen in several years, they've flipped the front and back nines. The new #18 (old #9) is a difficult finishing hole.
This was regular price for the course and the cart. The staff did not recognize it as such and wanted to charge extra to ride. They called the manager and he basically told them that they needed to pay closer attention. So we paid the GolfNow price. But the staff said they've been having problems with GolfNow. So if you get a discounted rate with GolfNow, you may find they want to charge you more once you get there.
Round lasted about five hours, which I would expect on a Sunday. Course was in good shape, especially compared to other public courses in the Valley.
Where's that dam?
Greens tricky, difficult to read for a first timer. I'll go back and do better next time. As an LA Senior cardholder I could have gotten a better deal by calling the course directly.
No value when you book a round and only play 13 holes
Our t time was 12:24 but the course did not get us out till 12:55. The play was very slow and we only got 13 holes play by dark at 4:45pm. There was no marshal to oversee the slow play. This was a poor value and the course should have given our twosome a replay coupon. We paid for a 2 rounds and did not even get close to completing.. Can golf now help rectify this???
Enjoy the course but horrible pace of play
I've played this course a handful of times and I usually try to play during the middle of the week, by myself, in a cart to get in 18. I played on a Wednesday, my tee time was 12:24pm. Got there about 15 minutes early, they said they were running 20 minutes behind. They didn't call my number to tee off until 1pm. And you could see that the second hole was stacked 3 groups deep already on the tee box. I was joined by a group of 3 guys, incredibly nice. The staff was very nice as well, although I only saw them at the clubhouse. It took us 3 hours to play 9 holes because everyone hole, every shot we were waiting. We had to quit after hole 15 because you just couldn't see the ball anymore since the sun had gone down.
I do enjoy playing this course, it's got the distance I need to practice on with tee markers over 6300 yards. There is enough danger to keep you on your toes. The greens were a little wonky. They were bumpy and inconsistent in speed but it is winter so I wasn't too concerned with it. I will definitely play this course again but hopefully next time the course is empty because it was tough to sit and wait that long on pace of play problems all the way through the course.
